Dwayne Deaver moved the pigskin across in the second quarter for the only score of the game. And the Demons went on to a 8-0 truimph over Deer Creek of Edmond.

The final two periods went scoreless and the Demons swept away an 8-0 victory. "The Deer Creek game was a MUST WIN game for us. We needed to win it to keep our hopes up for a play-off berth. Our kids really came through when they had to Friday night. We had a few problems during the first half but they were pretty well solved at half-time. "I believe our kids played to the best of their ability," remarked coach Mcllvain. "Our seconda'y consists of Pecos Bridenstine, Billy Womack, Terry Ventris and Roger Norrie. Our line hackers, Mark Anderson, Guy Rose and Scott Higgins also played real well. They only had a few good runs on us, and several times we just missed tackles on them. Our defensive played real well the last half. Our offensive line started opening some holes the last half that enabled us to control the ball more. We should have probably scored another TD since we moved the ball three times that we did nat score. "I was real proud of our team," Coach added, "when Deer Creek intercepted a pass and went to our 15 yard line in the 2nd quarter. They really got tough when they had to. "We go to Luther Friday night. We need to win this game to assure us a place in the play-off. It is the MUST game of the year for us." by Keith Disney THE STATISTICS P-T DC-E First Down 10 7 Yards Rushing 176 45 Yards Passing 69 35 Passes 4-7 5-14 Passes Int. by 1 2 Fumbles lost 0 0 Penalties 55 1S SCORE BY QUARTER P-T 0 8 0 0-8 Deer Creek 0 0 0 0--0 2ND QUARTER Perkins-Tryon--Dwayne Deaver 2 run (Billy Womack pass from Deaver) .0 o Junior Demons Down Oilton The Junior High Demons made it four in a row after they defeated the Oilton Panthers, 20 to 8.
